Post Pay Counter PRO allows you to pay your writers on WordPress basing on how many Google Analytics visits their posts logged. This tutorial shows how to set it up. After setting it up, you may be interested in putting up an effective visits payment flow.
Note: Post Pay Counter PRO does not keep track of Analytics visits, it can only use them to compute the payments. For the tracking you will need something like Google Analytics for WordPress.
First thing to look for is the Google Analytics Settings box. Every section is explained quite in detail, but what is important is that you go through these settings before going on with the setup. They are already set up in a standard and usually-fine way, but if you do want to change them, you should do that before anything else. Don’t forget to hit the Save options button when you are done.
Next, head for the Google Analytics Status box. It allows to authorize the plugin to make requests to Analytics on your behalf, thus getting visits data for your site. Click on Authorize plugin to get started.
You will be given a weird code: copy it in the clipboard and close that window.
Back in the plugin options page, paste the code in the field just below the authorization button you clicked before and click Submit. In a couple of seconds the list of your profiles will be loaded: select the one that corresponds with the site you are using and click Submit again.
NOTE: if you only see All Website Data as profile choice, and can’t pick the right one, have a look at this tutorial to fix the issue!
That’s it! You have successfully set Analytics up to work with Post Pay Counter PRO. The page will be reloaded and a brand new Google Analytics Status box will show up.
From now on, the plugin will periodically contact Analytics to get the latest visits data. You may want to get some data even for past days (optional, but useful actually!): go to the Update Google Analytics data section, input the number of days of past visits data you would like and hit the Submit button.
Every time some data is being updated, the Rows pending counter will display the number of pieces of data that still have to be updated. If, after setting up Analytics and pulling data, you still have posts showing up with 0 or a low number of views, it is likely that not all rows have been dealt with yet.
Finally, you can always undo this authorization through the Revoke plugin authorization in the upper right of the box, which will delete all visits data and every trace of it in the database.
If you can’t get it work and need support, there you go: the support forum is just a click away.
